Product Details

Using stoichiometry and a balanced chemical reaction, students predict the mass of product for their reaction! How close the prediction is to the final mass weighed determines their final score. Students will stay engaged and on target in this fun and challenging activity. To achieve the top grade, students will need to utilize their best lab etiquette! Have fun motivating your students to stay on target using the law of conservation of mass! Complete for 30 students working in pairs.

Performance Expectations

MS-PS1-2. Analyze and interpret data on the properties of substances before and after the substances interact to determine if a chemical reaction has occurred.
MS-PS1-5. Develop and use a model to describe how the total number of atoms does not change in a chemical reaction and thus mass is conserved.
HS-PS1-7. Use mathematical representations to support the claim that atoms, and therefore mass, are conserved during a chemical reaction.
